I think you have to draft the best player available. Then you can trade from your position of organizational strength (whether it be a surplus of forward, goalie or defensemen prospects) when you have a better idea of what type of player you have as he is further along in his development. I'd be happy with a good forward, but no more than a good player who plays any other position.
I was getting at the idea of moving up the draft so we could draft a blue-chip forward.
